The COCKTELLE raises $90 000!

On September 17th 2015, was held the first fundraising event benefiting the Lise Watier Foundation in Québec city. The Cocktelle, under the theme « Dentelle et Rebelle » , gathered more than 400 guests and friends from the Québec community.

Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, volunteers, corporate partners, sponsors and contributors, this event enabled us to raise the net amount of $90 000 !

A special thank you to Maison Simons who graciously agreed to donate the profits from the sale of a special t-shirt created for the event. The t-shirt is still available in stores and on their web site.

We wanted to express our gratitude to our honorary president Mrs. Britta Kröger of Maison Simons, to Hatem + D for their incredible involvement and to our Ambassadors who made this event a resounding success !

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

I am so grateful for the Lise Watier Foundation’s financial aid for studies. Thanks to this support, I have the tools I need to become professionally accomplished and to live again. I am proud of where I am today and I know that my children are too… and you can’t put a price on that.
